Ogrinz himself was initially skeptical of mashups when he first encountered them several years ago. Soon after, he discovered that mashups could solve business-specific tasks he previously thought to require significant expense and the expertise of a program's original developers, such as adding an RSS feed to a system, extending an existing system, or changing an interface. "I started seeing potential for mashups everywhere," said Ogrinz.

During this podcast, Ogrinz discusses in detail the how mashups can simplify data harvesting, explains the difference between a mashup and a portal, and provides an overview for the current development and market climates for enterprise mashups.
